Short Description Planning, development, and operation of a hatchery facility to provide native trout for supplementation of stocks affected by hybridization, habitat loss, and exploitation on the Duck Valley and Fort Hall Reservations
Target Species Yellowstone cutthroat trout redband trout Contributes to rebuilding weak but recoverable native populations. Management intent to have naturally spawning fish without targeted artificial enhancement. rainbow trout Pursues opportunities for resident fisheries (consumptive and non-consumptive) isolated from native species protection and recovery programs

Section 7. Abstract


Streams on the Fort Hall Reservation have suffered from years of livestock grazing and rapid flooding and drafting of American Falls Reservoir. In addition to physical habitat damage, fish stocks have been negatively affected through genetic introgression, competition with non-native salmonids, and exploitation. An effort to restore Reservation streams and riparian areas was begun in 1992 (Habitat restoration /enhancement Fort Hall Reservation; #9201000) and has been succesful in stabilizing banks, reducing sediment loads, deepening stream channels, and increasing fish numbers. The restoration project addresses one limiting factor in the recovery of native Yellowstone cutthroat (Oncorhynchus clarki bouvieri), specifically physical habitat conditions to maintain a self-perpetuating fishery. This project was initiated to address problems stemming from hybridization with hatchery rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and competition with non-native brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), brown trout (Salmo trutta), and hatchery rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The goal of the joint culture facility is to produce native Yellowstone cutthroat trout, redband trout, and rainbow trout. Rainbow trout will be produced for put-and-take fisheries in enclosed reservoirs to provide recreational and subsistence opportunities and ease pressure on native fish stocks. Native fish will be used to re-establish stocks diminishing due to habitat loss, hybridization with non-native species, and exploitation. Prior to selection of broodstock a genetic inventory of Yellowstone cutthroat will be completed on the Fort Hall Reservation. Native broodstock will be replaced with wild gametes at a rate of 20-30% every year to prevent loss of genetic variation. The majority of native trout supplementation will involve outplanting eyed or green eggs to hatchboxes. Adult cutthroat and redband brood stock will be spawned in the hatchery to provide eggs, fingerlings, and catchable trout for Duck Valley and Fort Hall Reservations. Cutthroat brood stock (160) pairs will be spawned to provide 350,000 eggs for the Fort Hall Reservation and 8,000 catchables. Redband (150 - 300 pairs) will be spawned to provide Duck Valley Reservation with 350,000 eggs, 245,000 fingerlings and 94,000 catchables. Also rainbow trout eggs will be purchased to provide 550,000 rainbow fingerlings and 164,000 catchable rainbows for stocking in enclosed reservoirs.
